Some parties don’t need a theme, they just need a bright burst of awesome color. In fact, I think it’s the key to turning any space into a party spot – a big burst of whimsy and color.
Which is exactly why I am loving this funky garland for fall. Just when colors begin to mute and dusk starts creeping up. BAM! Color.
A strand of festive fun will liven up birthdays, Halloween parties and anything in between.
To make the bright and funky garland, collect 20 sheets of bright cardstock paper.
Start by cutting out 6 inch long oval shapes from the paper. We cut our ovals in various sizes, from 2 inches to 8 inches, for added spunk. Fold each oval in half and secure with glue (or double sided tape) over a thin string to make the garland. That’s it! Party-ready in under 10 minutes.
I love that you can make this garland in an array of colors and sizes to make it work for gussying your own party or mantel display this season.
The bright and funky party garland also makes a gorgeous display anywhere around the house. Say… above a crib!?! Giving your small party effort an even greater festive return.
